After tonight’s episode of IMPACT Wrestling on AXS TV, Deonna Purrazzo can once again be called “Champ Champ”. “The Virtuosa” became ROH Women’s Champion (also currently AAA Reina de Reinas Champ) after deating Rok-C in a fantastic match in the main event of tonight’s show. Deonna was also in the main event for the recent “Hard to Kill” PPV, so maybe it should be “Main Event Champ Champ”?
Hopefully we get to see a rematch between this two, because that match was a lot of fun. Also interesting to see Maria Kanellis confront Deonna in the ring, as she was surrounded by the evil (or maybe they’re connected to the promotion?) ROH group of Matt Taven, PCO, Mike Bennett and Vincent. Deonna slipped away as “Drama King” took the beating, good friend move there.
You can see some highlights below, also tonight’s BTI above. Ring Of Honor stars attacked IMPACT stars during the show, ROH’s Ian Riccaboni was on commentary for the main event. Plus, ROH World Champion Jonathon Gresham was confronted by Maclin, leading to a match next week and more, so there’s a lot going on.
The ROH Invasion is legit and I’m excited as hell!
